By TOM BRADY-USA TODAY Sports When the Texas Lotteries lottery draws $3 billion, the NBA draft lottery is a mystery.

    There’s only one thing to know for sure, though: This year’s draft is shaping up to be a big one.

    The Houston Rockets are the first team to pick No. 2 overall and they’re playing in the first-ever NBA Finals in which a franchise hasn’t won the NBA title since 2004.

    The Houston Rockets, who are coached by James Harden, have won 11 straight NBA championships and are looking to break the franchise’s longest winning streak at 10 games.

    Harden has the NBA’s second-best efficiency rating and he is averaging 27.7 points and 13.7 rebounds per game.

    The Rockets have had a lot of success over the years.

    They won six consecutive NBA titles from 2008 to 2016.

    They are the only team that won four NBA titles in a row during the 2013-14 season.

    Houston’s season-opening victory over the Phoenix Suns on Saturday, however, was overshadowed by the Rockets’ poor showing in their second-round matchup with the Utah Jazz.

    The Rockets won the game 94-92 but were outscored by 24 points.

    That game was also overshadowed by an alleged incident between Harden and a fan during the game.

    “I’m sorry, that’s a very serious incident,” Harden said.

    “I’m not going to talk about it.

    That’s just a very embarrassing incident.”

    Harden said that he was simply upset about being booed and that he’s “not going to sit here and apologize to people for something I did.”

    Harnes said he did apologize to fans, including one fan who came out of the tunnel after the game and said she didn’t believe he was a fan.

    Harns said he would not go on Twitter about the incident because he does not want fans to be angry.

    “We were just trying to get back on track,” he said.

    The NBA Draft lottery, or the NBA Draft, is scheduled for June 11.

    The lottery will be the first major event of the summer and the first time in NBA history that the NBA has used a live television broadcast.

    The NBA will televise the draft in a live, in-person format with more than 20 million viewers.

    The winner of the lottery will get a first-round pick in the 2018 NBA draft.

    The winner will play in the second round of the NBA playoffs, which will start July 13.

    The 2017 NBA draft drew $2.8 billion in ticket sales.

    In 2018, ticket sales reached $3.5 billion.
